I posted instructions a while ago on how to setup ng_fec along with an
HP ProCurve switch supporting FastEtherchannel -- the same should also
apply for Cisco switches. Be warned that newer HP/Cisco gear has dropped
support for FEC in favour of 802.3ad/LACP...

I haven't experimented with ng_one2many, but my understanding is that it
only provides a "dumb" balancing/bonding solution.

Presumably we need an ng_bonding or something along those lines would be
required to achieve parity with what Linux can provide...?

Guess its about time someone start to work on a decent IPMP (solaris) like
and trunking feature.

In my opinion its an urgently needed implementation.
